If you get the opportunity to read  this article  and are in the path of the storm named Sandy (I suggest you do so quickly) then be sure to take a look at the hash-tags in the twitter feeds planning to gather and do looting.  #Sandy. There is no mistaking that this is a recent use of the internet to organized crimes against businesses, individuals and personal possession that has been earned by others.

It is a sad state of affairs that this is actually going on.  Yet it is a sign of the state of not only the economy but the social morals of society.

While we prepare for inclement weather or the down turn of the economy, there is another area we are even less in control of on our journey toward preparedness: Society.

I don’t say this to scare people, because I don’t believe we are to live in nor react out of fear.  I do say this to impress upon you and all those who may be thinking you can ‘go this road alone’ to gather more like minded folks together with you and plan and prepare with as many forces available to your community as possible.
